hours to watch it, and we're now, let's talk about the timing in a moment. i want to show you what is going on with this cold front. it is actually up in the panhandle, the actual front up to the north around new orleans, pensacola, and it is associated with a low that is going to wind up pulling a lot honestly. where we were going to see the strongest part of that low around the i-10 corridor, i would think we might be in for a very, very rough night. but that is not the case. this is going to be the main low. it is quite a bit north, and it is already east of us. so, yes, we have some rain coming in the middle of the night and northwesterly the morning. but not a severe threat that is concerning to us at all. it looks like mainly the showers. what looks to be a discome boplated system will be that one and wind up offshore of the northeast. now we still are tracking rain
storm tracker 10. quite a bit of ways offshore. there is lightning in here. so is there a chance by the time it gets to us, you hear the rumble of thunder, it is possible, but i think that is also because it is over much warmer gulf waters. as this hits the cooler shelf waters, that should weaken that some to where it would be less frequent lightning. we're talking about four to five hours away before we see this over tampa. about four u hours away before we see it on the gulf beaches. so this is going to ramp up about 3:00, 4:00 in the morning. future cast i think showing the timing pretty well. some of these will be a little are indicating. other also be weaker. the bottom line will be some of these could have a little bit of heavy rain to them. a.m. that's it. so what that will mean, some the morning. maybe a remaining shower if
the road, 5:00 and 6:00 and 7:00. but after that, this front is gone. the sunshine is here and the reason being again, the main low is winding up out hoar off of the carolina coast and just offshore of new england. so we're getting the trailing end of that front, and that will be all we see of it. the rest of the day we'll get you back to sunshine and a very pretty friday. from 3:00 to 7:00 a.m., that is the window for showers. 62 to start. 75 for a high temperature. and for tampa, and as you take a look around the bay area, 82 for plant city a nice day for the strawberry festival. 81 new tampa. 74 in st. pete. around the coast, it will be warm, too. east of highway 19. we're looking at upper 70s and low 80s. 75 in crystal river. the warm spot will definitely be the heartland. hardy county, 81 to 84 degrees
and care seta counties, a lovely day. 73 for a high temperature in sarasota and bradenton. 77 in lakewood ranch. now, as far as the winds will go, northwest wind also run the day, and that will give us a little bit of a breeze. hour. strawberry festival. on the water, moderate chop with those winds with waves around two to four feet. you can see our high tide around 12:35. 5:00 a.m. so the one thing we'll have to watch is the allergy report. lit stay high. oak, point and cedar that's what is in the air now. and through the weekend, a little bit of rain helps us out for the first couple of hours in the morning friday. and by the afternoon, it is back up again. the seven-day forecast, no other systems really on the horizon, just a windy day tuesday and wednesday. so we'll have some showers we'll track for you, 3:00 to 7:00 a.m. and 10 news at 5:30 gets started. or if you hear rain outside and it wakes you up, you have the 10 news app.
tracker 10 will show you exactly what is going on. >> in your tech news tonight, if you have questions for apple, you can now head to twitter for an answer. apple just launched a twitter account dedicated the fielding customer service issues. the handle is at app l support. the lightning going for eight in a row tonight, and anybody a share of first place. a monster shot today by one of the new guys in the rays' lineup. and i sit down with another tampa guy who is being inducted
one of the amazing facts about this age-game winning streak about the lightning, besides that it tie as franchise record, six of the wins have come on the road. like tonight's win in ottawa. 4-1 over the senators and that puts the lightning in the first place tie fending upon what the panthers do later on tonight. score unless the second. the goal there. and he is back handed in the rebound and then it is palat, he puts in his own rebound for a 2-0 lead, and that's all they needed. that's it. a 4-1 win over the bolts. they are home to carolina on saturday. after eight straight wins. wow. and the rays banged out 17 hits today, none bigger than this one from corey dickerson. second inning, and he just unloaded. it is better than deep the right. it landed ton boardwalk and bounced on top of the rays' offices. 569 feet away, and the rays smoked the orioles 10-3. and that is the ball right there. all right. and crystal scored the only
to lead the u.s. women's national team to a 1-nil victory over england tonight in the she believes cup. it was played tonight before 13,000 fans. jo and three years ago it was warren sapp induct spotted the hall of fame and two queers ago, and this year two more football players, guys we consider tampa guys are being inducted, tony dungy and eddie debart low who i sat down with today the talk about entering the hall. >> eddie debart low! >> reporter: being named to the hall of fame is something he rarely thought about. >> and one of the lucky ones to go into canton with the immortals of this sport, and i am so humbled and so honored that -- it is almost impossible to put it into words.
